How can I put myself to sleep?

I can't get comfortable and if my fiance even touch me I wake up and freak out on him. I'm only two months along so this seem kinda weird to me. Is there anything I can do to get a full nights sleep?

  • Tylenol PM is great for sleeping. And you can take it while pregnant.

  • I had that problem in my first trimester, too. My husband actually worked nights at the time, so I had most of the night to myself, but early in the morning when he got home was horrible. It was day light, so it would be hard to fall back asleep because of sunlight and stuff. I actually used one of those noise machines that plays sounds like water lapping (all though in my second trimester I just had to pee constantly and the sound of water made it 10x worse). But anyway, I also had a few sleep mask
